A very important note here is to ground the bridge. If the bridge is not grounded your bass will almost always hum when you are not touching the strings. If you still have hum problems you should also have, or should install brass plates under the pickups, and have them connected to the common ground, usually on the back side of the volume and tone pots. Make sure that these plates do not short out the pickups. You can insulate these plates with electrical tape or some other insulator.
Depending on the type of strings you use, the wear and tear on the board can vary quite a bit. Roundwound strings will eat your fingerboard, causing dead spots and loss of proper intonation. Flatwounds are far gentler and have a smooth texture. This being said, the more you play on the board the more it will need to be dressed and sanded. Like a formula race car that get's it's tires changed every few laps, your board will need to be smoothed out and it's crown or arc restored to get a consistent sound.
